About 7 months ago I spoke with a friend of mine who received a Capital One credit card offer in the mail and since he knew that credit and finance was my expertise, he asked me if he should accept the pre-approved offer with a $300 credit limit.
Having had a Capital One card in the past, I was very suspicious and cautious in recommending that he takes them up on their offer but in the end, I relented and told him that although the interest rate was a bit high, it seemed like a fairly good deal as far as poor credit card offers are concerned.
Well, to make a long story short, he ended up accepting the offer and for seven months straight he paid the entire balance in full and never paid a cent of interest. Today, my friend informed me that Capital One had raised his credit limit from $300 to $2300! Now that’s what I call a great return on investment!
*UPDATE: As of 5/15/19 my friends’ credit limit is now up to 8K!
